    I love to read books set in interesting places or historical settings. I especially love mysteries and thrillers.

    "Love Walt Longmire"

    As long as Walt Longmire, Henry Standing Bear and "Dog" are part of the story, I would listen to any audio-book. My only complaint is that this book is set in Pennsylvania and not in Wyoming, where these characters belong. Still, Craig Johnson wrote a great story (as usual) about Walt's visit to see his daughter, Cady, in Pennsylvania. Lots of things happen as soon as he arrives that keep him busy solving crimes far from home. Despite the toughness of the characters, there is a load of wittiness and kindness.

    George Guidall is the best narrator and reads these stories brilliantly. Start at the beginning of the series. I savor each of these books.

    "Another great Longmire book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really love Longmire books! They are all so entertaining and witty and funny! This one made me laugh out loud several times with the clever humor that is subtly tucked into the story. The relationship between Walt, with all his charm and wit, and all the other characters in this story are great and play out perfectly. There is one scene with Vic in this book that I didn't see coming and I'm not sure I liked it. I'm curious to see how it plays out in the following books. Narration was spot on, as always! Great series!

    "Amother excellent performance and plot"
    If you could sum up Kindness Goes Unpunished in three words, what would they be?

    Western, street wise.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kindness Goes Unpunished?

    Walt and Vic!


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George only compares to himself. There is no one else close. This is just another impecable paerformance for the master!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Western justice, Philly style.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series and the charactors. Johnson's good work continues to impress.

    "The best so far!!"

    Granted, this is only the 3rd that I have listened to in this series, but to me it was the best. I really have become attached to these characters and I owe it all to George Guidall. This story had me laughing out loud, anxious, sad, curious, excited...all the things I want a good story to make me feel & do.

    Story
    "Another well written entry in the series"

    The author treats serious topics with as much respect as he treats his characters.

    In addition to a solid story, the writing is beautiful. I particularly enjoy Johnson's treatment of native American mysticism in this series. It is neither overstated nor treated as a trite superstition. Nothing that happens in the story could be called magic, or could not have happened with only common, non-mystic, explanations -- yet the beliefs and experiences of the characters are compelling and their view of the world makes us the richer for having been part of them.

    I have a friend who went through a similar set of injuries with his daughter and the treatment in this story rings true (if thankfully less detailed).

    I do wish that Guidall's cadence was a better match for the slow drawl of a Wyoming cowboy or even more so a high plains indian. He tries, but he's just too east coast. Still, he's a gifted narrator and the word doesn't suffer from his treatment.

    "Walt goes to Philly"

    At first it was strange to have Walt & company running around an eastern metropolitan area, but the characters stayed true to themselves. It was also enlightening to learn more about Vic's family- explains a lot.

    "Comfort Food!!"

    This is my go-to series when I don't know what I want to listen to--I just love it!! I'm trying not to devour them all at one time--I want to make them last, just like my mother used to tell me to do with special treats (of course I thought she was being totally unreasonable at the time!) way back when---

    This book in the Walt Longmire series was different from the series so far--it was set in Philadelphia instead of Wyoming. Unique--and very interesting! And the supporting characters were all different--well, related but different!! And as always, George Guidall was the perfect narrator.

    I highly recommend this book, and all the books in this series. It is currently my very favorite series in my ever-growing audio library--
